Synopsis

The seductive art of the short story as an entertaining, engaging, thrilling format is fully realised in these tales from the Golden Age of crime fiction. In this collection you will encounter all kinds of felonious acts including murders, thefts, and strange disappearances. Some stories feature brilliant amateur detectives such as John Dickson Carr's Dr Fell, R. Austin Freeman's, Dr Thorndyke and, of course, Sherlock Holmes; other tales will allow the reader to gradually unravel the mystery for themselves, unaided by a smart sleuth. So many of these fascinating tales have been out of print for many years and their reappearance in this collection is a treat for any reader who enjoys a rattling good mystery. This is escapist entertainment of the finest quality.With an Afterword by David Stuart Davies.
